Find and locate stocks where the 8ema is crossing above (bullish) or below (bearish) the 21 ema on a 78-minute chart.
If the 8ema > 21ema, the indicator will show a GREEN shaded area , be bullish OR if the 21ema > 8ema, the indicator will show a RED shaded area, be bearish.
Buy to open with a “Limit buy” order if a green arrowis present at CLOSE of a 78-minute candle or sell to open with a “limit sell” or if a red arrowis present at CLOSE of a 78-minute candle.
Use either stocks or options. allocate the same $$ for each trade, continue in the trend (stay in the trade) until you 1) trend is changing. 2) ready to lock in profits.
